Marie Antoinette Bridal Session

Who doesn’t love Sofia Coppola’s, Marie Antoinette? The retelling of France’s iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette, was such a thrilling, colorful and amazing film that brings out creativity in us all. We love seeing interpretations of the film.

They are all different, and all over the top. Just as our next Marie Antoinette Bridal Session is from Chelsea Nicole Photography. Instead of 18th century Versailles, they chose a dry lakebed in Las Vegas. A complete opposite location, but still visually stunning. Complete with gorgeous floral arrangements, lace, jewel and of course some Macarons. See more all the photos by clicking here.

Simple Brooklyn Wedding

Blair and Rie got married for the third and final time at St. Valentino Pier in Red Hook Brooklyn. No – its not what it sounds like … they actually were legally wed at City Hall in NYC last year, followed by a traditional Japanese ceremony in Japan earlier this year – this was the party for the American crew. This Simple Brooklyn wedding was captured by Oh, Darling. You can see more of this New York wedding in the full gallery by clicking here.

Here are some words from the bride:
“We were very lucky to have some talented friends help us out. Our wedding invitations were designed and printed by our friend Michael. The wedding cake was created by my friend Yoshie, who is a professional pastry chef. I especially want to thank to Kyoko, who is my best friend from high school. She made the bouquet, boutonnieres, and all the flowers at the tables.

She and her boyfriend Ben run a small business producing the sugar boxes that we chose as our wedding favors ( I can not imagine our wedding without her! Kyoko and I went to flower district in the city two days before the wedding, and bought a bunch of flowers. We saved a lot of money doing that by ourselves. I found a beautiful vintage lace ribbon at Brooklyn Flea, and wrapped it around the bouquet.

The animal puppets were bought on Etsy and used in place of table numbers. We created the seating chart by scanning in the drawings of the animals included on their packaging. Then printed them out on shipping tags we got from Staples. We soaked them in coffee to add a bit of an aged feel to them. We were preparing our wedding right through the night before our wedding day. It’s now a good memory, but we actually went to Kinko’s late the night before the wedding to finish things up!”
